On this topic, are there only two classes of folk in your worldview?  Believers and deniers?  How about those of us sitting on the fence who acknowledge points made by both sides?  What about those of us who want the science to be proven and re-tested, based upon the proven shenanigans?  Sounds reasonable to me.

Oh wait.  I'll just bet you assume anyone who isn't a believer, by virtue, MUST BE a DENIER!  Of course!  Silly me.
 

I'm genuinely curious when I ask this: Have you ever posted anything in support of anthropomorphic climate change? I had thought that the majority of your arguments were "it's a sham foisted on us by the environmentalists".

edit: duh s/anthropomorphic/anthropogenic.   Although anthropomorphic might be an interesting discussion as well.

Actually, I think that you under estimate the rationale and intelligence of a lot of folks with that particular attitude. The fact that climate change is a reality over time is hardly in dispute. The argument comes over just what role humanity actually plays in it. I think there is room for discussion without the snide remarks, don't you? There are plenty of questions yet to be answered, the science of tact and political strategy notwithstanding.

WOW.

"The determination gives the EPA wide-ranging authority over the operations of energy production and manufacturing:"

"Don’t kid yourself into thinking the EPA doesn’t understand the scope of its power.  By classifying CO2 and methane (among other so-called greenhouse gases, it can inject itself into just about every industry in the US.  Energy production will be its primary target, but the EPA has also gone after coal mining on the basis of the Clean Water Act; it will certainly not be shy about using this new authority to kill coal mining altogether.  It will also impact agriculture, especially dairies and cattle ranching, as well as transportation.  The entire manufacturing sector will have to answer for its output."
 
Yes it will. There's this little thing called "Congress", see...

From the EPA, by way of the CNN website, more actual and reputable information on the subject in time for Copenhagen.
